— Questions with negative marking
When there are questions with ‘negative marking’, the first thought that comes to mind is, SHOULD I TAKE A CHANCE? If you are not 100 per cent sure of the answer, then you will not consider answering it at all, lest you get negative marks. But that is exactly what you need to avoid.
Though random guessing is thoroughly discouraged, it may still be prudent to eliminate options and get to probably two likely answers so that your probability of getting it correct goes up. This is possible in all questions, which have Multiple Choices. However, if there are no such choices given (as it was the case in two sections last year), then it is better to leave such questions alone.
